Welcome to Bookish Quotes here at Bookmark Chronicles! Every other Saturday at noon (EST) I will be sharing a quote either from a book or about books. Feel free to share your favorites as well, either on your own blog or as a guest post.
“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! — When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.“
~Caroline Bingley, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
This book is one of my favorites and definitely my favorite classic! Let’s be honest…..what bookish person doesn’t agree with this quote, am I right?! Granted, Caroline Bingley may have been lying to get Mr. Darcy’s attention but that’s not the point.
Every book that I have enjoyed, I’ve kept (I don’t want bad books in my library). And yes, I do plan on having an actual library. An entire room full of books, because why not. There also must be a window seat with a few pillows and a blanket, there just has to be. Also, I imagine having a stereo system because sometimes I listen to classical music while I’m reading. The shelves can’t be too tall though. I’m only 5 feet so the shelves can’t be much more than that 🙂
Do you want or have a library? What does your dream library look like?
I’ll share another quote on Saturday January 21st, until then let me know what some of your favorite bookish quotes are!
